Surviving the Cookie Apocalypse with AesirX: Analytics and Marketing in a Cookieless Future04 MINUTE READ
Who Stole Your Cookies: How to navigate the cookieless future of analytics and marketing
From June 2023 the analytics and digital marketing landscape is going to see major changes.
As concerns over user privacy and data protection continue to mount, the age of cookie-based digital marketing is coming to an end, opening up a rare opportunity for businesses. In fact, during the second half of 2023, the majority of old Google Analytics users are in the market to replace their analytics solutions.
So what happens next, and what can you do to join the fight for online privacy?
The End of the Cookie Era
Here’s what’s happening:
Cookies have played a crucial role in digital marketing and analytics by tracking users' online behavior and providing data that helps businesses personalize their advertising and improve their website's user experience.
However, cookies are going away due to increasing concerns about privacy, as well as regulatory framework restrictions such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which limit the use of user data.
Additionally, browser restrictions and national security concerns have further accelerated the demise of cookies.
As cookies become obsolete, businesses face the challenge of finding alternative ways to gather data and personalize their advertising, while also respecting user privacy and complying with data protection regulations.
What That Means for You
► Marketers spend up to 20% of their digital marketing budget on retargeting, driving up to 150% increase in conversion rates.
► E-commerce sites using retargeting to suffer an estimated revenue drop of 25-30% by December 2023.
► Already, up to 50% of all data is gone from e-commerce site owners, and by the end of the year, up to 85% of all data based on cookies and old/illegal procedures will be gone.
► Digital strategies based on the use of personal data are no longer an option and both centralized consent and SaaS models are being challenged.
So, losing cookie-based tracking would have significant implications for digital marketing and analytics, as it would limit businesses' ability to track users' behavior and personalize their advertising.
Ad targeting, retargeting, and attribution could be affected as businesses would need to rely on alternative data sources to achieve the same level of personalization and effectiveness.
